A reporter for the Bergen News, Chris Turley could never measure up to his father―one of the last great investigative reporters and a difficult man to impress―but still, he can dream. Stuck covering small-time press conferences and town hall meetings, Chris fantasizes about winning his own Pulitzer, however unlikely it seems.

Then one day while he's waiting to meet a source, a giant explosion takes out half of an office building next door. Shocked into action, Chris saves five people from the burning building. His firsthand account in the next day's paper makes him a hero and a celebrity. And that's not all.

The source's next tip delivers a second headline-grabber of a story, and suddenly Chris's career is looking a lot more Pulitzer-worthy. But then it seems this anonymous source has had a plan for Chris all along, and his luck for being in the right place at the right time is not luck at all. In the blink of an eye what seemed like a reporter's dream becomes an inescapable nightmare with his own life on the line.

David Rosenfelt's Down to the Wire is a dazzling, page-turning thriller.

Chris Turley is a young reporter who dreams of fame and of breaking important news stories. Then he runs into what might be a stream of incredible luck. An anonymous source asks to meet him in a park. Moments after Chris arrives at the meeting place, an explosion tears apart a building across the street. Chris manages to save several lives, and to write the story as only a participant could.
The anonymous source calls again. This time the tip leads to the mayor’s downfall, and more headlines. The next tip does not go so well. Chris arrives at a secluded spot to finally meet the anonymous source, but he finds a murdered person there instead.
The source who gave him remarkable leads is a serial killer with a grudge against Chris. Soon he’s calling Chris to take credit for explosions moments after they occur. The killings will continue, he says until Chris commits suicide. This is a chilling story with a terrifying antagonist.
Rosenfelt’s prose flows. He’s a good plotter, a good writer. Like all his other novels, this one is clearly worth the read.

If you're reading this review you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.

While you're reading this novel everything is exciting, new, tasty, and fun, fun, fun. The pages are going to turn as fast as a water meter during the first hot day of summer when all of the sprinklers are turned on.

But when you're done with this book, having quickly gotten every last bit of excitement you could get while you were still in the midst of literary passion, you're going to ask yourself: Did I really do what I think I did?

Yes, you did and yes you're going to regret it the next day. This book has a lot going for it, but beneath the action, short chapters, interesting plot, and mini-mystery there is no depth here whatsoever, and there are many unfinished answers to important questions that are glossed over in the hopes you won't notice the books warts and bad breath while you're so enamored of the clever writing.

I loved this book, and I will be recommending it to others, but I know that this could have been much much better.

From beginning to end I was hooked! Rosenfeldt has a way of giving you chills & humor at the same time. Just when you THINK you figured out the bad guy, you find out you were wrong. Main character Chris Turley (and the country) is living a nightmare from hell. I especially like Rosenfeldt because he can tell a story without inserting a ton of swearing. You'll have a hard time putting this book down!

David Rosenfelt must be so sick of hearing that. But it's his fault, really. He's created this whole ensemble of characters that you like; you like hearing about them, what they're up to, what they'll get involved in next. That being said, the things I didn't like about this novel are the same things I didn't like about "Don't Tell a Soul." There are too many unlikeable characters in this book.
That's a stupid reason to not like a book, I know. But I don't hang out with people I don't like; why would I want to spend hours reading about characters I don't like? I'm not a literary giant, just a person who reads for pleasure.

I'm only writing it so that the Kindle software will let me out to choose my next book. Otherwise, the software gets stuck in a loop.

Although it might be amusing to see how long this remains posted before a human sees and removes it.

Roosevelt draws you into his works in a well-timed, methodical manner until finally you realize that it is too late and you won't be able to put down the book until the last word has passed before your eyes!
